PAPER DOLLS

Paper dolls are figures cut out of paper with separate clothes usually held onto the dolls by folding tabs. I remembered when I was just a kid, I used to make paper clothes for paper dolls of my nieces (we're close in age).

Today, online and virtual paper dolls have a popular following, with users able to drag and drop images of clothes onto images of dolls. However, paper dolls are still being created today because it is inexpensive. And many artists are turning paper dolls into an art form

This week's challenge in MMM is paper dolls by the guest host Patty. I was challenged to create one. I cut out the image from a magazine and dressed her up with a special paper from my collection. I added the bead buttons and I cut her hair short too.

Have a Monday full of arts to everyone!

Hindi ko alam kung sino yan @ Mel. Ginupit ko lan sa add ng mag. Kelangan ko magkaroon ng challenge kahit hindi ako marunong sa designing. Designing is my wekaness sa art kahit I love to do. Kaya walang pag asang maging fashion designer.
